    I recently got two JL w6 12"s and a JL 1000/1 and my whole car like rattles and shit. Is there any alternative to Dynamat? Has anybody taken thier whole rear deck apart and rebolted everything back together? I'm scared my rear window is gonna break from all of the bass.

    Let's say I do dynamat my car. Will I still hear rattle from my trunk and rear deck? Does it help that MUCH?

    Rammat (or rmaap I forgot how to smell it) is an alternative. Also go to lowe's and pick up some peal n seal. It's dirt cheap and can be used for the floorboard but not the doors because the sticky stuff will melt in the sun. (that's what I would do)

    www.fatmat.com is also a good alternative from what I hear.

    I did that with my old civic.

    the results were mixed; MOST of the rattles went away, but when the resonance frequency of the car hit, it seemed to be much louder. :dunno: just my untrained ear's perspective

    ive used the peel and seal on my doors, it works fine, didnt peal off in the summertime though..its like 30 bucks for a bigass roll of it, make sure you use a heat gun when you apply it too just as dynamat, it contours pretty well too.
